(12.4) It was a huge deal when last year’s game had to be canceled. Bill Koch writes in the ProJo, “The Friars and Rams failed to schedule a game for the first time since before World War II.” Do fans consider this a grudge match, a tradition, a rivalry? URI head coach David Cox put it this way,
“It’s a huge game for the state,” Cox said. “I don’t want to play semantics — I don’t know if it’s a rivalry or not. I just know it’s a huge game with a huge atmosphere.”
The teams are pretty well matched this season: Rams (6-2) and Friars (7-1).
